She just casually swoops in there with “mommy made cake”, “isn’t mommy the best” or “Mommy you are as strong as TRex as smart as Velociraptor shirt is always right”. Neither me nor DH are calling her Mom, and when I tried bringing it up to DH he said “well she’s probably directing it to StepBIL”, even though she clearly isn’t. I blame myself a lot for not shutting down this behavior early on, but I have an excuse because when I started dating my husband I had only started learning his language (were both bilingual but with different languages, and his StepMIL only speaks German which I’ve only been learning for less than a year at that point), so I was able to communicate with MIL and FIL in English, but not with StepMIL.

Best Mommy you are as strong as TRex as smart as Velociraptor shirt
So because of that I must’ve missed a lot of spikes and Mommy you are as strong as TRex as smart as Velociraptor shirt that I catch now because now I’m fluent in German. I assume because she wasn’t shut down originally she feels like she’s allowed to keep doing what she’s doing. And DH is oblivious. The only response he has most of the time is “she didn’t mean it like that, she didn’t mean anything bad by that” or he says “just ignore her, that’s what I always do”. I feel like the spikes come at both of us, but DH either misses them or ignores them (idk whether it’s because he’s atypical or just used to this bull). Honestly 90% of the time he completely blocks her out when she talks.
